It is known that the resolution of a telescope large enough to study the smallest particles located in space, and especially the field of star formation.

On Saturday, it posted an image on its Instagram handle that showed two yellow orbs above an arc of light - painting a smiley face in space.

"The one below, an arc-shaped galaxy, has a shape characteristic of a galaxy that has been gravitationally stretched, its light has passed near a massive object en route to us, causing it to distort and stretch out of shape", as NASA said.

Analyzing the luminosity, size and rate of formation of young stars in such images, the NASA researchers hope to better understand how stars are formed in cold parts of the Universe.

When stars are born, they emerge from giant clouds of gas, called stellar nurseries.

It seems Halloween is not over for the galaxy as NASA's Hubble Space Telescope captured what looks like a smiling face, albeit creepy, in a cluster of new stars. These massive clouds, or stellar nurseries, grow unstable and begin to collapse under gravity, becoming the seeds that will grow into new stars.

Launched in 1990, the Hubble Space Telescope has made more than 1.3 million observations of stars, galaxies, black holes and other celestial targets, including some that are more than 13 billion light-years away.

The Hubble Space Telescope has been in space, looking across the universe for almost 30 years. The device got its name from the famous American astronomer Edwin Hubble.

Initially, with a mission of only 15 years, Hubble has been at the forefront of scientific discovery for more than 28 years now.
